3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a slightly hazed golden orange color with a finger or two of white had.
S: Nice citrus hop aromas followed by a definite pine character. The piney hops are incredibly oily and resinous which you donít often find in a pale ale. Some moderate malt notes of bread and biscuit malts.
T: A nice flavor, but not quite as good as the nose. Not as much citrus and the pine is not as intense either. More toward the bready malt side of things with some grapefruit peel adding additional bitterness and maybe some floral notes.
M: Medium in body with the carbonation on the high end of medium.
O: Pretty decent pale ale, though itís a bit too bitter without a ton of hop flavor.

Bottle from Hi Time. Pours bright amber with a foamy beige head. Aromas of light roast malt and resin. Med body. Seems to start with a touch of diacetyl. Then mild roast malt and some hop that seems resin. Something is coating my tongue a bit. Finishes just slightly on the bitter side. An ok APA.

On tap at brewery. A nice refreshing straight up Pale Ale, nicely balanced and clean finish. I suspect they use Amarillo in this one.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Italian bread and a little yellow fruit aroma. Flavor is not so hot; cardboard, light butter, dried oregano hops. This beer kinda sucks.

Tap at the brewery. Poured a slightly hazy deep yellow with no head and no lace. Aroma is citrus hoppy, fresh grapefruit. Taste is soapy hops, citrus hops, slightly chemical. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Quite light golden-amber with a decent head. What little aroma there is is light and grassy. This drinks with a definitive earthy feel, musty and dirty, yet light and easy drinking. Bring on a pulled pork samíich. (#3886, 4/21/2010)
